Alicia Cantinieri to present “What Leadership Needs to Know to Work with the MDS Team (NF)” at the 2023 VHCA/VCAL Annual Convention and Trade Show
September 13, 2023 at 10:00 am - 11:00 am EDT
Is your team ready for the many changes in the year ahead? The past few years have been challenging for the long term care profession, and facility teams are stretched. With new Requirements of Participation introduced in October 2022, a new MDS version set to become effective in October 2023, and the ongoing CMS audits of antipsychotics and schizophrenia, it does not appear we will get a break. With the new MDS version, we also expect changes to quality initiatives, including QRP, Staffing, and Five-Star. Updates will also involve looking at facility policies. MDS and PDPM are team sports; however, due to differences in responsibility, the interdisciplinary team and leadership often speak different languages. This session will enhance the leadership team’s knowledge regarding what they need to know to better work with the MDS team and what needs to be in place to ensure compliance with survey and reimbursement.
